- About this book
During the conference «Journals and History of Science» held in June 1997 the issue of the role of journals in transforming the history of science into an independent historical discipline rather than purely a branch of natural science was greatly discussed by the international scholars in attendance. These essays aim to provide a systematic historical analysis of the literature already available on the basic functions and importance of journals as bearers of institutional organisation.
